The pandemic has stopped many classes from taking field trips and halted in-school visits, but some Canadian cultural institutions have revamped their educational programming to offer virtual experiences that are reaching students in their neighbourhoods and beyond.

Challenge is 'to find ways to connect, to find ways to to visit places, see things, do things we can't do'

UBC’s Master of Museum Education is a unique graduate degree program focusing on the study of education and learning that occurs in museums and other informal learning contexts (such as, art galleriesscience centresparkshistoric sites, etc.). This program draws together museum professionals, educators and those with an interest in using the community to support teaching and learning to further their thinking and scholarship around museums as sites of education and learning.

Program Start: September 2020

Below are a few examples of the incredible learning opportunities educators in the informal learning community are offering to help teachers make better use of learning outside the classroom.
